Green On The Go

I’m always moving. Even in my sleep. This funky lil’ green through summer I shall keep. Love my life!

Skate Lunch Juice Read

Ate and drank ridiculously crazy yesterday. Me and the Easter bunny. Running buddies fo’ life. Another groovy Sunday for the books. 

  
Decided to give my system a much needed break today. No solids. Mostly water, green tea with lemon and a small bag of trail mix. That was this morning’s vibe.

Lunch was a quart of apple, kiwi, banana and kale and a new book I picked up yesterday. Felt good to sit in the sun and read. Casually sippin’ on all things green.

  
Headed to yoga after work. Taking it slow. Letting my system find it’s natural flow again. Dig. 

Pre Bikram Green

It’s been months since my last yoga class. Sorta fell outta love with it after a year of practicing. Various studios. Too much rock and roll let’s see how far I can bend into this posture Hollywood shit. Call me corny but I really dig yoga for the whole mind releasing spirit restoring vibe. Also to gain a deeper insight into my own emotional baggage. Years of parked planes. Too much weight for one person to bear. Wheels up. Time to fly Shon. 

  

Gonna hang out at Bikram Yoga Marina Del Rey for a few weeks. See how things go. Flow. Good class with Ryan this morning. Challenging. Felt no pressure to be super yogi. Spotted a few capes. Unbothered. Modified where I could. Managed my breath when I could remember. Think my fave go to green helped. It never fails to keep me hydrated. Exactly what you need for 90 minutes in 105 degrees. Drink up!

Rainy Day Green

Another rainy day in LA. Slid on my board. Dodging rainbows and God’s flow. Dig on this mean green y’all. It’s packin’ a lil’ heat. Morning vibes. Blissful.

Pain Free Green

One of my fave go to green juices. Tend to drink it throughout the year. But especially during the colder months. Yes, the temperature drops below 75 degrees in LA. My last run was Wednesday night. Shortly after taking a high intensity gym class. Not my smartest move. 

The back to back impact was too much for both knees. My ankle also began to whisper. Took notice. And took off. The next few days that is. Couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t recovering well. Then I remembered this groovy green. Simple. Yet effective. I love kale. And turmeric too. The benefits are startling. Drink up!

Pre ATC Workout Green

Super light green. Hella energizing. It rules over inflammation. I like to get a jump start on my lactic acid buildup. Normally I go for a smoothie before taking a HITT class. Of the rationale that the fuller I felt after drinking it the more it would sustain my workout. Got that one wrong again Fred.

The smoothies tend to not digest as easily unless I drink them at least an hour and a half before class. No bueno. I’m usually hungry again by the time class starts. There goes my focus and form right out the foodie window. Anybody else suddenly want pancakes and a really good tofu scramble?

Drinking a green juice 45 minutes before class had the opposite effect.

•No upset stomach once I began to sweat
•No cramping
•No bloating
•Felt satiated and energized during the entire time

Keepin’ it clean and light before each workout from now on. Definitely like the benefits. Let me know if you try this recipe. Cheers! Norm! Okay, I’m gone.

One Fine Green

I wrote some time ago that my Nutribullet was on its last leg. It’s safe to say it’s finally sunken to its knees. Until the eulogy dig on this sexy green. On a separate note, can someone please tell me how to get rid of most of the categories on my blog? John was the only person kind enough to respond to my earlier post Bloggers I Need Your Kelp…Help. Somehow I inadvertently erased his comments while delivering my own one of gratitude.

I’m a good writer. But no fancy blogger. I barely understand how to link what to what. Just not my language. I’m from a different planet. While you’re whipping up this green think about how I can make my blog vibe lean. Sharing is daring. Thanks in advance and always wax your eyebrows. Moon child out.

A More Balanced Green

Been writing. A lot. Been getting hit with all sorts of energy. A lot. Been not sleeping. A lot. Heavy vibes. Bringing it all back into focus. Letting go of all things that disrupt my flow. Hate that I forgot to pick up fresh mint yesterday. It is truly the missing cherry for this green sundae. I’m gone!
